High school and independent counselors often encounter college-bound students who are Christians or who wish to study in a Christian environment. The intent of this article is to help familiarize counselors with Christian colleges. By being familiar with these colleges, counselors can help their students of faith better facilitate a successful college search. Christian colleges are "all together different." They hold many things in common with each other, while still maintaining individual distinctions and personalities. They share a number of traits with the rest of higher education as well, but have characteristics that obviously set them apart. They are not the right choice for every student or even, for that matter, most students. However, for those who seek or might benefit from a faith-based academic environment, from a highly personalized education, from a campus that affirms their evangelical religious traditions, Christian liberal arts or Bible colleges may be an ideal fit.
